Embedded standards group formed
Published: 11 July 2012 - Michelle Winny
A meeting has gone underway for the SGET Standardisation Group for Embedded Technologies eV.
A group of embedded computing manufacturers have formed the registered association to drive standardisation of embedded computing.
The aim of the association is to speed up the development of new standards for embedded hardware and software.
Twenty-three companies signed up to support the founding principles during an inaugural meeting, including Advantech, Congatec, Data Modul, Kontron and MSC. SGET supports this group by providing the appropriate infrastructure that will facilitate the efficient implementation of the standardisation idea.
The SGET statutes and objectives as well as the working group regulations and voting rules. Other companies from the embedded computing industry are invited to join the association and contribute their ideas.
In addition to embedded computer manufacturers at board and system level the invitation also extends to chip and connector manufacturers, research and educational institutions, embedded system integrators, OEM solution providers and industrial users.
